Synopsis

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • A standalone thriller featuring a “tough-talking, scarred heroine”* from the author of the Temperance Brennan series, the basis for the hit TV show Bones.

Meet Sunday Night, a woman with physical and psychological scars, and a killer instinct. . . .

Sunnie has spent years running from her past, burying secrets and building a life in which she needs no one and feels nothing. But a girl has gone missing, lost in the chaos of a bomb explosion, and the family needs Sunnie’s help. Is the girl dead? Did someone take her? If she is out there, why doesn’t she want to be found?

It’s time for Sunnie to face her own demons—because they just might lead her to the truth about what really happened all those years ago.

The fact that Reichs has struck out on a new series that is pure thriller and mystery with little to no forensic science shows just how talented a thriller writer she really is. TWO NIGHTS is a solid read with complex characters who deserve to be seen again in future installments of the series.

She seems rather unapproachable and full of self-pity at first but gradually we learn about her motivations and what makes her tick. Reichs’ fans will love her, I am sure. I certainly enjoyed the ride and will be pleased if Sunny and Gus make a return appearance.
